called mitch mcconnell thursday for the first time this year. the white house says republicans are spending more time criticizing than working on a solution. >> imagine if republicans would have the amount of effort into finding a solution as they have coming up with hashtags. >> another big question this afternoon, does the public really understand what is going on with the sequestered. a new poll says almost half of americans have barely heard anything about the budget cuts. >> let's take a look at what is going on locally. a piece of the big midwest storm is coming in here. our temperatures are almost as cold in the midwest, but the moisture is not prepared to do much. here is chesapeake bay. we're getting a little mix of precipitation showing up on the radar, but the air is dry and not all of it is hitting the ground. up to the north, radar is indicating some sprinkles and a mix of precipitation is possible. none of it is very heavy. down to the south could be a few degrees warmer and a little more liquid if it is even hitting the ground. here are the temperatures. westmins

mitch mcconnell. the conversations were characterized as good, but no signs reporting progress. national park service budget would take a 5% cut and is expected to affect parks from coast to coast. that likely mean fewer park rangers, reduced hours of operation and closed facilities. >> places like gettysburg will have to turn away 2400 children that are there for school purposes. the bathrooms will be dirty. some of those trash cans will not be emptied. these are the places that speak to who we are as americans, and we are going to cut that budget? >> bullets flying, a maserati and a range rover racing toward a red light on the las vegas strip. it sounds like something from an action movie, but it ended with three people dead. the maserati ran a red light and smashed into a group of vehicles. for more vehicles than collided, injuring six more people, while the range rover is better off. police -- the range rover sped off. check out this stunning video from san of fate, new mexico. a 17-rope links to make scale lift chair at -- a 17-year-old. then he plummets on to the steep run below. r

judd's possible candidacy against mitch mcconnell, and here is karl rove basically criticizing the tea party or essentially slamming the tea party while mitch mcconnell is doing everything he can to cozy up to the tea party. i think republicans around kentucky will be very confused. >> just to be broadening this out slightly, how does mr. rove suddenly pivot from resentment politics that he's been selling to white voters for the last 30 years, they're coming to get your jobs to come and get our jobs. how does he pull that one off? >> yn if he can pull it off, but it's pretty obvious why. he's looking at the people who are paying the bills and the ones who are putting up the money don't want to pay to run campaigns for extreme radical fringe candidates. so he's going where the money is, which is, i guess, probably predictable. >> i guess it is. in a "new york times" profile last week, it was suggested republicans would be thrilled to run against ashley judd, an actress, who is described by her own grandmother as a hollywood liberal. mr. rove's super pac as you have just mentioned have r

. now, here is where it really gets, i think, in some ways, even worse. i have to say, mitch mcconnell does provide me with a lot of material. [laughter] in 2010 the two big tax cuts were all won in 03. in 2010 at a time when, you know, it was pretty clear that that first decade would yield the revenue reductions on the scales somewhere between two and $3 trillion over the first ten years, mitch mcconnell, july 2010, he confirmed the next day that what senator john kyl had set a few days earlier was accurate. he said, there is no evidence whatsoever that the bush tax cuts actually diminish revenue. the increased revenue because of the vibrancy of the tax cuts and the economy. i think what the senator was expressing was the view of virtually every republican on that subject. and i was, this is no kind word that you can say in response to that. they're making this up. they have to be making the sub. to they believe it? a thing to do. the truth is, i think they do. i think one of the things in the last two chapters that i have spent some time with is a lot of the recent research about how

this stuff up. the caucus that boehner of course can't control and mitch mcconnell for that matter. they're against a path to citizenship. so how is this going to play out? >> i think that's why one of the reasons why the president's proposal was actually finally put on paper and leaked, actually put a stake in the ground. now, if we don't have a path to citizenship, let's have an honest conversation with americans, basically saying by not having a path to citizenship, we're creating 11 million folks that are living in this country that basically all of the sudden become stateless. we don't want that. we don't want two americas. >> how do you know john mccain is sincere? how do you me if he really doesn't care if immigration reform passes, but he is home right now knowing that the demographics aren't going to work against him if he wants to run again. >> exactly right. well, first of all, you can only take a person's word, right? so right now his heart and the fact that he is going out front and center. but he also recognizes that anything short within the latino community that doesn't h

response. in fact, it didn't take any time at all. senator mitch mcconnell's reaction arrived in my inbox before the president finished speaking. today's event at the white house proves once again that more than three months after the november election, president obama still prefers campaign events to common sense, bipartisan action. that was mitch mcconnell the psychic senator. in a paper statement, of course, as congress is currently in recess. speaker john boehner, never one to balk at a touch of plagiarism offered the same criticism but he tried to lay the blame on the president by calling these his sequester cuts. funny that because i seem to remember the speaker striking a different tone on the budget deal that produced the sequester. what was it he said again? >> you look this final agreement we came to with the white house, i got 98% of what i wanted. i'm pretty happy. >> that was it. let's get right to our panel. david corn is washington bureau chief for mother jones magazine, and karen finney is former dnc communications director. both are msnbc political analysts and i'm deligh
